THE TRIAD SERIES
 
  ABSTRACT LIVES BY THE NUMBERS HEAR, NOT THERE  
 
This Fall, Arts Guild New Jersey is presenting three exhibits curated by three independent curators. The set of the three exhibitions is titled the TRIAD SERIES. These shows will all feature the same eleven pre-selected artists, who were chosen for their large range of work and/or, the fact that they have many distinct bodies of work. The artists featured are Adel Gorgy, Eileen M. Foti, Neal Korn, Peter Jacobs, RoCa, Diane Savona, Rocco Scary, Tom Nussbaum, Frances Heinrich, Grigory Gurevich and Bill Westheimer. Through this project we aim to investigate how the artwork of the same artists might be viewed by several curators each with a distinct point of view.  We also want to determine what connections they may see during the review of the artwork of the featured artists that can lead to the establishment of a coherent theme or topic upon which the exhibit will hinge. The third of Triad Series, HERE, NOT THERE is curated by Jackie Cruz, who is currently the Director of Exhibits at the City Without Walls Gallery in Newark, NJ.

Here, Not There is a group show that examines the broad range of media and methods of addressing public and/or private spaces and how this exploration inadvertently affects everyday life. These artists have collectively responded to environment, which is defined as where the investigation or re‐imagination of space is explored and reflected. Through a variety of approaches, this exhibition provides the viewer with a glimpse into the artists’ interpretations of environment and what space means to them including: lyrical searches for beauty and transcendent meaning; design and architecturally driven views of landscapes; and sociopolitical critiques of contemporary culture.

Thematic concepts become the pulse of constructing successful group exhibitions and creating everlasting impressions on your viewers. When invited to participate in the Triad Series at the Arts Guild the immediate challenge as a curator was to find a common theme within a group of pre-­‐selected artists.

After carefully reviewing everyone’s work a commonality became evident within all the artists, this being environment. Historically, addressing environments has been a long traditional subject for artists. From the Barbizon School impressionist and en plein air movement during the mid-19th century to Earth Works addressing the state of nature and materials lastly, entering the 21st century (and of many sectors of 21st-­‐ century life) addressing the impact of globalization ‐ ‐   the accelerating interconnectivity of human activity and information across time and space. This survey of artists presents either through form, semiotics or materials their reflections and visual translation of environment and what it means to them as artists.
